Igli Tare Reveals Three Clubs He Rejected to Stay at Lazio

Having just announced his departure from Lazio, Igli Tare is now a free agent. The Albanian spent almost two decades with the Biancocelesti, first as a player and then immediately in a managerial capacity. According to Tare, he had the chance to go to two rival Italian teams offering a bigger pay early in his career, but instead chose to stay put at Lazio.

Tare spoke to Il Messaggero (via Calciomercato) in an exclusive and revealed some background on his Lazio career.

“I will never forget 18 years with Lazio. I rejected Milan, Naples and Eintracht, where I would have earned ten times more and I could have gone elsewhere for some time, but I’ve always stayed for the great gratitude to Claudio Lotito.

Tare left his Biancoclesti sporting director post after 15 years at the helm, as he deputized president Lotito in the club matters. The Albanian executive could now join Milan after all, with Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara both expected to leave the club following budding tensions with Rossoneri owner Gerry Cardinale.
